The lights in the refrigerator were flickering when the door wass opened and a chattering noise was coming from the refrigerator.
Traced the noise back to the Electronic control Board. Removed the ECB and inspected it. The solder at the back of the board was burnt in one place.
Ordered a new ECB. The three connectors on the board were identical to the old board, but the board had different components to my old board. The components match was about 60%.
I still installed the new board. I have been monitoring it for two days, all is working well.
